  • Bad birthday

    This is not the best birthday I've had. This morning at 6:30 am a car knocked my niece off her bicycle on her way to work. She suffered a broken arm and severe bruising to her ribs and back. At 11 am my son in law was taken into hospital after suffering a stroke. He is comfortable and is being constantly momitored for the next 24 hours. He will be having a brain scan sometime this evening. We are having the children stay with us tonight, they are a little bewildered but bearing up. My daughter is trying to be strong for them but sometimes it gets too much for her and she breaks down. Tony is only 49 years old and it has come as a great shock to us. He is a veteran of the 2nd Gulf war and recieved some injuries in Iraq which have left him partly disabled. We will be living on a knife edge for the next few days.
    Thanks for listening

          Thanks to you all. We have to wait until tommorow for the results of the scan, so I don't think we will get a good nights sleep, but I'm ever the optomist.

It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                                Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                                Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                                HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
